Blurb from inside cover:
After over a year of late-night sessions in New Jersey and Manhattan, Metro Area burst onto the scene in 1999 with their self-titled debut 12" featuring the cult smash "Atmosphrique." The brainchild of veteran producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, Metro Area was born out of the duo's love of both the old moods of R&B, disco and boogie and the more cutting-edge sound of innovative house and techno.

Metro Area brings back the soulful experimentation of early club classics, mixing live and electronic instruments. Simultaniously, the mood and minimalism of more recent dance music forms creeps into the mix: Detroit's cold futurism, Chicago's abstract track-modes, and the warmth of New York and New Jersey's deep house.

The vinyl Double LP sports three new tracks and five killer cuts from the 12" series. There will be a further new track released as a single with a special remix (T.B.A.), released later in November.

The CD version contains seven series tracks (specially edited) alongside four new songs. The album includes the track 'Lets Get' which has been worked in just for the UK version. Metro Area will be over in the UK to DJ and do some special live shows in October.
